914 Insider, a new directory service that provides free local listings for Westchester-based small businesses, will award two local charities/non-profits donations totaling $2,750 as part of a kick-off event to be held Oct. 17 from 5 p.m. – 7p.m. at the Music Conservatory of Westchester at 216 Central Ave. in White Plains. Since the aim of the company is for customers to “stay connected” with their favorite local stores (learning first about sales and special offers), founder Sabrina Kucevik of Bronxville wanted to connect with the community by giving back to those that give so much in the county.
Winners will be announced at the event with online voting on the 914 Insider Facebook page playing a significant role in the selection process of a $1,000 grand prize, $750 runner-up prize, and a third prize in the amount of $500. An additional $500 will be donated to the Conservatory. 914 Insider plans to award two cash prizes every three months with the idea that businesses receive free advertising while, at the same time, support local charities.
